David Cassidy

Charged With DUI

2/4/2014 4:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0205-david-cassidy-tmz
David Cassidy has just been charged with one count of driving under the influence of alcohol  ... the L.A. City Attorney's office tells TMZ.

We broke the story ... Cassidy was arrested in L.A. Jan. 10th after cops say he made an illegal right turn. We're told he had alcohol on his breath ... and failed a field sobriety test.

Law enforcement sources tell us he blew a .19 in the field -- more than twice the legal limit --  and refused to submit to more testing back at the police station.

Cassidy has a prior conviction for DUI in FL ... and a DUI arrest in NY.  According to the city attorney, that means he'll serve a mandatory 96 hours in jail if convicted this time ... and could face up to a year behind bars.

I'm sleeping
And right in the middle of a good dream
When all at once I wake up
From something that keeps knockin' at my brain.
Before I go insane
I hold my pillow to my head
And spring up in my bed
Screaming out the words I dread:

I think I'm drunk

I think you get a pass on a single DUI but that's about all.

LOSER.....this guy took his fame and let it go to his head. At the same time David was popular so was Bobby Sherman and he has gone on to do great things with his life! So glad I was never a fan!!!!!

The older he gets, the more he mirrors his father.

Alcoholism IS a progressive disease, David.

I think it should be mandatory a year in jail for DUI and loss of license for a year once out if jail. Of friend mine was killed coming home from work minding her own business when some turd driving drunk ran a red light and killed her... It's ridiculous how so many people get multiple DUIs and haven't learned a thing. It's disgusting.

Then let's hope the next time he does it he hits a telephone pole so he is the only one that gets hurt or killed. Selfish prick. That fantastic LA justice system (or lack thereof) should be held accountable for their lack of action as well.

Sounds like he needs to spend some time at the hard rock hotel. He doesn't get it.

I am saddened by David Cassidy's continuing problems. Having known his late father, Jack, I think he has a genetic predisposition to alcohol addiction. Please get help!
